Hey Tan, that female is the same female I got when we both ordered from Mn Betta Shop. The male is also from Mn Betta Shop and I got him the last shipment. I got a better video of them both and she dropped a ton of eggs. I think she is a happy girl!

Yes I have them in the breeding tank apart from each other that way they can still be heater, I will be putting more live plants this weekend for the infusoria. Do you recommend something different?

Haha! It was getting confusing!

If your reason to place them in the tank is so they can share a heater, get a shallow plastic tub and fill it with a few inches of water, enough to cover the heater and place the beanies there.
It's not good for them to claim territory in the spawn tank because it may lead to aggression.

Yes, wait until the day you are ready to place them in the spawn tank to set it up. It will keep the water clean. Do place plants that day so infusoria starts to produce.

Once you have the tank set up, place the male in and the female in the beanie inside the tank. At this point you need to observe and be very patient. Wait until they demonstrate signs of readiness.
In a day or two you want to release the male, some people just plop them together but I'm always to afraid my HMs will hurt eachother fins (they are so pretty) so I wait until I'm ure they are ready.
After you release the female it can take days for them to spawn or it they could start in a matter of minutes.. every pair/spawn is different.

Okay good to know!! I will put them in a big plastic bin I have with the heater like you said. I will also take out the plants now and put in fresh water. My last spawn was pretty brutal but it was a pair of traditional fighter plakats so the male was really aggressive with the female. It took them 2 days before they were both ready. I am going to be doing it just like you said and place the female in the tank in her beanie while the male checks her out. Thanks for all of your help you are a doll :)

You're welcome!
When you place your plants in, also keep the tank light on during the day because it will make the infusoria grow nicely. By the time your fry are free swimming you will be able to see a million critters in the water which your fry will find very yummy
